Linda Neill



It is with great sadness that we announce the gentle passing of our beloved Linda. She passed away peacefully at the Grey Nuns Hospital surrounded by family and friends on June 24, 2016.

Linda bravely lived with cancer for nine years and during that time, overcame what many saw as overwhelming challenges. She was a wonderful advocate for the Alberta Cancer Foundation and an Ambassador for so many other patients.

Linda began this world as Linda Joy MacCharles on February 12,1955 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Growing up in a loving family, she married Frank Samu in 1980 and moved to Alberta where they had two children. She enjoyed a successful career in the dental field. In 1996 she moved with her children to Edmonton, Alberta and enthusiastically pursued a new career in the insurance industry. She met and later married Shane Neill.

Linda touched the lives of many during her 61 years of life. She will be forever remembered for her love of family and compassion for others. She had a great sense of humor and loved music, reading, golf, fishing and all things outdoors. She loved baking for the pleasure of others and will be sorely missed for her famous butter tarts and peanut butter balls.

Surviving her are her loving husband Shane, children Lindsay (Adam), Lucas (Shauna), Dana (Tyler) grandchildren Ivy, Kaleyha, Chance, Brielle, brother Rod (Marg) sister Brenda (David) and numerous nieces and nephews. Linda was pre-deceased by her parents Bill and Joy and sister-in law Susan.

Memorial Service will be held at Connelly-McKinley South Funeral Home, 4820 Meridian St. NW Edmonton, AB on Thursday July 14th at 1pm. Reception to Follow.

In Loving Memory of
Linda Neill
(Maiden: MacCharles)
